As you know, I’ll read a book on any subject as long as the author makes it interesting.  So when I picked up The Footnote: A Curious History by Anthony Grafton, I had hopes.  I mean, I once read a book on the history of diagramming sentences, and it was hilarious.  So a book on footnotes could have been equally interesting.  But no.  I gave up before the end of chapter two.  Ah well.  I did try.

Before that I read a history of love and marriage.  Now that was interesting!  Blog post about it to follow shortly…
